Results of an entomological collecting trip to St. Eustatius (Coleoptera)

In February and March 2020 the second author visited St. Eustatius to
collect various insect groups. The beetles collected during this trip were
identified by the first author. Forty-six species could be identified to genus
or species level. Twenty-one of these were new for the island and 15 even
for the Dutch Antilles. This research brings the number of beetle species
currently known to occur on St. Eustatius to 117, which is about a quarter
of the number of species expected to be present on the island. There still
remains a lot to be discovered
